Aldi has announced today that award winning TV and radio presenter Lucy Kennedy has come on board as the supermarket’s very first Pet Ambassador. Lucy and her family welcomed their puppy Riley, a Golden Labrador crossed with Springer puppy last month and she has already made her presence felt in the Kennedy family home.
“I am thrilled to partner with Aldi Ireland to be its first Pet Ambassador. I take huge pride knowing that our first pet is a rescue dog, as I am passionate about supporting the amazing work that people such as Lynne from Milo’s Mission Rescue do. ‘Adopt don’t shop’ has become my mantra ever since we put our names down a year ago to adopt a puppy. Riley and I look forward to sharing our ups and downs and hopefully creating a community of like-minded people throughout the year. Over the next few months, I will be talking to pet experts who will hopefully be helping our family and Riley and along the way, along with lots of other families.”
John Curtin, Group Buying Director at Aldi Ireland said:
“As a nation of pet lovers, we’re delighted to welcome Lucy (and Riley) on board #TeamAldi. The past year has highlighted to many of us around the country how much joy a pet brings to a home, and we have an amazing range of pet food in store every day for your furry family members. We also have Pet Events throughout the year, where customers can pick up everything from play-balls, pet beds, toys and more.”
Lucy’s top tips for living with a puppy!
• Make sure you and your family are ready for a puppy and all that it entails.
• Crate training is not a luxury, it’s a necessity for a dog who is living inside the house and will end up being the size of a small pony.
• Mind young children with the small puppy.
• Be prepared to have things to be chewed – and to quote that film, ‘let it go’.
• If you are overwhelmed ask experts for help – people are so willing to help.
The first Instagram Live Q&A that Lucy will do as Aldi Pet Ambassador will be with Dog Behaviour Expert Alex Petrilli on the 24th March at 7pm. See https://www.instagram.com/lucykennedytv/ and https://www.instagram.com/aldi_ireland/ for more details.
